The Northern Colorado Alzheimer's association accepts drawings from victims of dementia throughout the year. They then choose 52 pieces for an annual auction which is held in June and raises 25K or more to fund programs run by the Alzheimer's association in the area.
My dad has had at least one submission chosen each year for the past three years. (In 2004, his water color was their signature piece.)
In May, the association has a tea to honor all of the artists whose pieces were accepted.
Here are the pics from this year's tea. (I may dig back and add the pics I took in 2005 and 2004 as well if I can find them.)
